A Christ on Campus Appeal: University Lutheran Chapel (MN)

ULC A blessed Holy Week to all of you!

As many of you have perhaps heard, the property associated with one of our Christ on Campus Chapters, University Lutheran Chapel (ULC) in Minneapolis, is being recommended to be sold by the Minnesota South District, in spite of the fact that ULC is one of the oldest and most respected LCMS campus ministries and is nearly self-sufficient.

ULC has served as a beacon for all of the rest of us doing campus ministry for countless years. Its influence and campus ministry legacy is quite widespread.

We at Higher Things stand by ULC and encourage your support in the following ways:

  • Pray for our brothers and sisters at ULC, including Rev. David Kind and all his students that they might not despair, and that God would give them strength.

  • Get familiar with all the source materials and information about ways to help at http://ulcmn.org.

  • Support all the campus ministries of the Synod, which like ULC, serve young people at a very vulnerable time in their life and when so many fall away from the faith.

Though we are all grieved by this recommended action and we pray it does not take place, may we all turn our focus to Christ and His Word especially during the remainder of this most holiest of all weeks. That is what ULC is all about. It is what campus ministry should be about, and it certainly is what Christ on Campus and Higher Things is about!

May God sustain Pastor Kind and all the faithful at ULC and may He be with all of you who seek to confess Christ on campuses everywhere in these gray and latter days.

Let us not forget that our gracious God has a blessed habit of turning such things (all things) into good. This week, quite literally, is the ultimate reminder of just that!

"Confessing Christ on Campus Since 1517"

"If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things of the earth." - Colossians 3:1-2 NKJV
